How to use your own css file in Drupal

Here is another small tip for designing drupal website. When you develop sites in drupal you be definitely need to modify the existing css file of the theme you are using. my suggestion is don't mess much with the original theme. Keep it as it is or change it only when you really have to.

Just create your own css file, lets say we call it MyOwn.css and write your code in it. Then edit the .info file of the theme you are using and add the following line in it.

  1. stylesheets[all][] = style.css
  2. stylesheets[all][] = ribbon.css
  3. stylesheets[all][] = aggregator.css

How to add more fields in contact us form

We recently revamped a website for an Interior Designer and Vastu Expert. The project is Nirmaanam. She called us today and asked us to add a contact number field in the contact form. Well there is not simple way to do this.

Many of us have used the contact us form again and again but whenever we need to add some more fields in contact form then there is a serious problem as the default settings in the contact module doesn't have any way to add more fields. We generally switch to web-form to add more fields to the form.

Drupal Workshop at ASET

We organized a successful Drupal Workshop at Amity School of Engineering & Technology. We reached the venue well ahead of time, surprisingly there was no traffic on Saturday on NH8. The workshop was interactive and most of the students who took part in it showed interest in Drupal. Around 50 students attended this workshop. Though we planned this session for 2 hours only but it took us around 4 hours!

Drupal as a social networking platform

Because of the way Drupal is structured, it is very fexible in adapting to the needs of a wide range of different web sites. Permission to perform various actions such as creating content, writing a comment, writing a blog post and so on can all be assigned to different roles within Drupal, be it the role of an administrative user or the role of a standard user who is logged in. This means we can grant the permissions to contribute and help in managing the content of the web site to the users of the web site.
